    I am very happy that the A.R.F. is holding a conference in Armenia; thus instilling our people in the homeland to stay vigilant and pursue our rights against the perpetrator, the Republic of Turkey who has been denying the Armenian Genocide for almost a century now, and because of it they still hold so much hatred in their hearts towards the Armenians by instilling into their people and even in their schools to hate Armenians and deny the Armenian Genocide. It is true that one of the gentlemen in the video above mentioned that the hatred that the denyalist Turkish government show towards Armenians is not any different than the Ittihadist government of the 1915 who have committed the greatest Genocide against their own civilian citizens; the Armenians from 1915 thru 1923. Another gentlemen in the video also mentioned that it is the very task of the Armenian Republic to pursue the rights of Armenians through international legal channels. Justice must prevail and the perpetrator must be stopped of denying the Armenian Genocide.

    Turkey has the potential and the promise to be the first Islamic country to join our Western Civilization. We are not asking much. It does not cost them much to do just that.

    Turkey must start a campaign to admit to its people that their current country sits on the ashes of earlier civilizations that they vanquished and obliterated, the latest of which was the Armenian civilization which extended from its southeastern Mediterranean coast to its northeastern Black sea coast.
